I would like to thank ESPN & ESPN W for their respect, admiration, and celebration of the strides Title Nine has done for equality in sports. Title Nine’s strides to support women in their endeavor to compete at the same level as men, facilities equal to men, scholarship opportunities, and overall respect. Not only does the company sell sports/fitness clothing, adding the above adds to the quality.
Why did bring this up? Well, when watching the coverage on ESPN Saturday (June 23rd) of the USA vs. Canada softball game as well as the Phoenix Mercury vs. LA Sparks WNBA game, I had time to reflect. I began playing sports at a very young age, and it helped shape me as the person I am today. The question on who is your most inspirational woman in sports came up during the broadcast, and I could not narrow it down to just one.
Shout out to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their recognition and collaboration with ESPN W! Happy 40th Anniversary Title Nine! Here’s to 40 more years of making strides.
